Prayer Reflections

I am coming upon the end of the year and the end of my prayer journal. With only a few more blank pages, and nothing urgent on my schedule, I decided to spend some time reading through my prayers over the past year and a half.

Often I think my prayers are too insignificant. I berate myself for not praying enough -- really, I should have filled more than one notebook by now with all the prayers this world has needed in the past 18 months. I think I should be praying for more people, for more burdens, for more grace. But today, I just accepted what was there, and I was overwhelmed by the work that I have seen God do. So many little answers to prayer that I just would have overlooked, that I literally forgot or didn't even realize He had answered, until I took the time to reflect on all that He had done.
